  1. Please synchronize the affinity files with the new iOS 11 file system. This will anable people to work seamlessly on the iPad and a PC without the need to constantly export files and having multiple out of date versions.
  2. Hello, I just realized that my RAW developed in .afphoto weighs tons !!!! Always more than 100MB, while I have only done the development + addition of a single layer ( picture 5000px X 3400px ). I understand better why the free space of my hard drive melts like snow in the sun! Is it like that on other development software? It will become difficult for me ... Especially that finally the .afphoto does not bring much for just development because we can not even go back on a development in progress ... There is a solution to alter the size of .afphoto files? Regards.
  3. Hey! I am running into a bug here. Affinity Designer 1.5.5 sometimes crashes when trying to save a new file. Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce this reliably, but since updating to 1.5.5 a few days ago, this happened about 4-5 times. This is what I did: 1.: Open Affinity Designer 2.: Create new file (cmd+N) 3. Save file (cmd+shift+S) 4. Set directory 5. Create new folder 6. Select that folder 7. Save into that folder 8. Designer should crash I am using OSX 10.11. Best wishes, Shu
  4. Hi thanks all for keeping up with this great apps package. I would like to know if it is possible to create a document and drag into this document 3 other files that would be place as layer, but would be updated if those file would be changed or modified individualy by someone else on another package. I would like them to be updated in my document and keept as external references. Then if I want to convert them as embed within my document and break this external link I would like to have this option to do so as well. Let me know as I would like to know if I can base my next project pipeline on your apps. Regards.
  5. Hey community! I have been working professionally with Affinity since the release of Designer and am quite happy with it. Now I had to upgrade to El Capitan (10.11.2) from 10.9.5 and since the upgrade, both Affinity Designer and Photo can’t open my files any more – no matter where they are (wether it’s the server or locally in my user folder). It always says that there aren’t the right permissions. I checked that and my user (as well as all other relevant users) have full rights on the files. I downloaded the fixed Betas (though they are older than my current ones – Designer Beta is v1.3.5) and they’re showing the same problems. Also, starting the applications seems way slower than before, starting with a small white splash screen. Can you please help? Thank you in advance!
  6. Hi! New Mac user here! Before I buy Affinity I would like to know if it is possible to open, import and edit .CDR files.. Thank you!
  7. Hello everyone, I open a lot of files by drag&drop inside AD and this often results in two issues : 1) The main "Window" menu does not display all the open files, see screenshots, only 10 of the 16 windows are displayed. 2) When I have much more files open, and I decide to drag another one in, the Ui goes through all the already opened files before showing me the new one... It sometimes take a very long time to do so. Small addition concerning point 2, if I had previously closed multiple windows before adding that new file (opening that new window), the closed ones will come back again and I have to close them again! IMHO severity of this bug is high, because depending on the file sizes, this can stuck the whole program for 5-10 minutes or more... Thanks in advance, best regards.
  8. Hello, I've been using AD since the first beta. I'm encountering problems when copy-paste simple drawings from a file to another one. It happens that Designer changes the dimensions of the drawings, sometimes the scale, sometimes the stroke thinkness. :wacko: When I close it an reopen, it goes ok, but minute after minutes copying and pasting, the size of the drawing changes pasting from file to file. :blink: AD 1.51.43 :ph34r:
  9. I've been using Lightroom for a few years, but it's limited so I've bought Affinity. However, I want to eventually delete Lightroom and use Affinity for all my work. Problem is finding files from Lightroom and associating these with Affinity. At present, the process is a little convoluted. I have a large number of photos (10k+) organised into a good number of folders and sub-folders. I'd like a way to transfer these folders from Lightroom to some other picture storage software that will allow that process. Anyone any ideas, please? Thank you.
  10. I cannot follow the Resource "core_skills.afdesign" at the top of a topic in the Workbook. Some insight onto using this would be helpful. I do not have the practice files for the Workbook and would like a link to get them.
  11. Summary: Would love to see the "Export Layers As Files" function, where it takes your current document and exports each layer as a separate file to a chosen directory. Usage: Frequently I'll do screencaptures and paste the results into a document. I'll then crop the document to the size of the screencaptured window, but now I have 100 layers of screen captures that I actually want as separate files. This feature would automate that process. Thanks! - Neil
  12. Hi Very pleased to be able to manage assets within AD and am spending a great deal of time creating various libraries for our company :) I therefore wish to ensure that the growing asset library is both backed up frequently and shared as seamlessly as possible with my colleagues. I know that I can export assets to a file, but I would like to write scripts to backup and share with my colleagues whenever I make a change to the library of assets. Could you therefore let me know where are the assets are actually stored on a mac, so that I can target this directly rather than requiring to export each time I make a change and manually redistribute? Is it possible to configure one (or more) locations to store assets? Thanks for your help, regards, Tim
  13. I just started using Affinity Photo and noticed that files produced in Affinity (.afphoto) just show the Affinity icon when viewed in Adobe Bridge. I am able to see thumbs/previews in the Finder on my Mac, just not within Bridge. I am currently using Adobe Bridge CS5.1, so perhaps someone can let me know if this is possible in later versions of Bridge or if there is a way to add the ability to generate previews for Affinity files in Bridge.
  14. Yesterday, I purchased Affinity from the AppStore. I opened a photo, worked on it, saved it to my desktop as affinity file, closed Affinity, then double clicked my desktop file, when it failed to open in my prior Affinity Beta app, so I trashed that version and tried again, only this time it was trying to open in Skitch. I trashed Affinity and installed it again from the AppStore. I still have the same problem. HELP!!!!! Thank you. I am using Affinity 1.4.2 on OS 10.10.5 dadsdance 2.afphoto
  15. Hi all, my experience with tabbing documents in AD is not that good. To be honest: i wasn't even sure it is already implemented at all. Because I am used to this function way more "fluent". What I mean is: try tabbing in your Safari Browser or open PDFs in Adobe Reader ... you can hit CTRL+Tab just some milliseconds and you will be tabbing your open tabs or documents. Then switch to AD and try tabbing between 2 open files. It won't work. You really have to hold down CTRL, click on tab, "wait" till your files where switched and then release CTRL. For me this delay is annoying and unnecessary time wasting. On top of it, as I said - I didn't realized that this function has already been implemented. I hope this will be "fixed" in the near future. Cheers, Stefan.
  16. Here's my problem. I've been editing a lot of photos in Designer, basically just adjusting the levels and highlighting. However, recently a lot of my files have been turning up corrupted once I try to reopen them. The adjustment layers remain intact, but the image layer is scrambled. Just a bunch of lines. I have the most up-to-date version of Designer (1.4.2) and I'm running Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. Any thoughts on what might be causing the problem, or how I can fix it? Thanks all.
  17. Something that's been bugging me for a while now. I have no control how a file is placed into a document on either of the apps. The imported file just sticks to the mouse pointer and I have to manually place it. That just steals time away from work as it piles up. I'd rather have a way to just import a bunch of images in one go (without using stacks, that just adds a different workaround). Especially now that we have 32-Bit EXR and AP can now be used as a stills compositing tool as well to combine multiple render passes. It'd also be good to set an option where to place the imported image. For photo bashing / matte painting for example it's helpful to import a bunch of images and have them show up on the canvas without overlap, like a gallery, so work can being right away with less moving things around. For standard compositing tasks a top left pin… and so on. For showcases it's often useful to just place things side by side. So a way to just say, n on x-axis with distance (xx cm) would save a ton of repetitive tasks. In terms of UI this could be solved with a few standard options to click on and an advanced option that have saveable presets. But most important to me is the automated import of many images to x=0, y=0.
  18. It would be useful on the home screen when you open Affinity Designer as well as the work of the designers, there is the possibility to open the last used files.
  19. I've lost my AFFINITY app, and can't get it from the APP STORE. I had a major problem with iTunes ( when I bought a =new iMac ). I had to reformat my hard drive to fix it. Can anyone help?
  20. I'm having an odd issue opening existing artwork files. When I start up Designer and then attempt to open a project Affinity sits doing nothing - unless I open a blank document then repeat, it then works/opens correctly. I having this issue on both my Macbook Pro and office iMac, I have tried several different files. I do save my artwork locally but its is in a Dropbox folder if that has any effect on things?
  21. Hey all, Take a look at this,.. In this tutorial we look at using a really cool app called Lingo to organise and store your assets, - icons, logo's illustrations, photos etc and how it works seamlessly with the Affinity Apps.

  22. Is there a way to import all the art boards in an .AI file instead of just the first one? Or at least be able to choose which art board to import?
  23. I just switched from Aperture and Photos and am very impressed. With the Apple products, they take care of cataloging and filing the images. I have looked at tutorials for Affinity and unless I am missing something do not see how it works. Since I am starting new, would appreciate any suggestions. Right now, i am separating the exported files and the work files in different folders. Just trying to save myself from a mess in the future. Thanks,
  24. Hi folks, when I go to File> Open Recent, there are just old files. No recent files (can't find my latest file, the list is not updated) … Any suggestion? Thank you :)
  25. I am a complete newbie to Affinity and this is my first attempt at a project. I am attempting to copy a pattern used by an artist on the Web who is involved heavily with Sacred Geometry. If you are interested you can Google Charles Gilchrist or Sacred Geometry. The pattern was used as the base for one of his Mandala paintings. The pattern called Natures First Pattern is basically circles arranged to form a repeating pattern. This is the result of my first attempts with Affinity and vectors in general. Of course, I had to pick an easy one ! I am convinced that Affinity Designer is made with secret magic potions and mysterious spells. All of this pattern is split into individual pieces and the file is still very small and extremely responsive on the screen. If I were to export this file to PSD it would generate a 13 Meg file ! The document size is 24 x 24 inches at 300 DPI for printing. I will post an update when it is colored. Should take me about 23 years !
